Our Capabilities are Unmatched Across
At Cen-Tex Sheet Metal Fabricators, we provide a wide range of capabilities suitable for large and small scale projects. Our facility is 24,300 sq. ft. and contains the latest technology and equipment. We’re proud to offer our customers not only advanced equipment, but also collaboration with our team of engineering experts to help improve projects. We boast an engineering department with over 30 years of experience in the fields of design, engineering, drafting, manufacturing and machine programming. We’re known throughout our customer base for helping redesign fabricated parts for product improvement, manufacturability and cost savings.
Along with our engineering help, we have an Autocad design 2D and 3D software and numerical control machine for post programming. We also offer laser cutting, waterjet cutting, shearing, press braking and various other machines and capabilities.
What We Do
We have a 6 Kilowatt Fiber laser cutter on a 5' x 10' work table that is able to cut through steel, stainless, aluminum, copper and brass in various thicknesses. Our laser cutting is unmatched in power, speed and precision.
At Cen-Tex, we’re able to precisely bend materials to our customers’ tight tolerance project specifications. With our three press brake systems, we offer precise, repeatable bending.
Our computer-controlled water-jet cutting machine packs a 60,000 PSI hydraulic pump in combination with garnet that creates a precise and abrasive system. We are able to cut through all material types including metal and plastics through 6” thick.
We have the shearing capability to shear blank and straight cuts through all material types and grades up to .250" thick.
Our Re-finishing Department boasts grinding, re-graining and blending capabilities for part surfaces and to improve part appearance.
At Cen-Tex, we have mig, tig and heliarc welding capabilities to create fabricated assemblies for any project.
Our 6 Kilowatt computer-controlled laser is unmatched in power, speed and precision. Tolerances held across the table on most material thicknesses are +/-.005.” This laser boasts a 5’ x 10’ work table travel with a shuttle table for loading and unloading speed of raw material and completed parts. This machine is able to cut material types and grades in a broad range of thicknesses including steel thicknesses from .005” to .750,” stainless and aluminum from .005” to .500,” and copper and brass from .005” to .375.”
Cen-Tex Sheet Metal Fabricators has three state-of-the-art brake presses for bending materials. These include hydraulic presses that are 12’ by 250 ton, 6’ by 75 ton and 6’ by 35 ton, and they are equipped with 4-axis CNC back gauges for precision and repeatability bending. All brake presses share a large array of standard and custom tooling to be able to bend all materials to meet all customer needs and project specifications.
This is a numerically controlled, highly-abrasive cutting system that combines water and garnet. The 60,000 PSI hydraulic pump pushes water to the cutting head where the garnet combines with the water flow for the fast erosion process. The table work size is 5’ x 10.’ The process is able to cut titanium, bullet-proof glass, tile, granite, marble, Kevlar, plastic, rubber, ferrous and non-ferrous metals - everything except tempered glass.
